Movement Against Xenophobia conference tomorrow


'In the UK in 2014, what passes for a debate on immigration is a desolate and harsh discourse of intolerance and prejudice. Families are divided, migrants are scapegoated and the undocumented are hunted. In a willing consensus between politicians, the mainstream media and alleged ‘think-tanks’ such as Migration Watch, the blame for so many of society’s ills are placed on the shoulders of migrants.

'MAX (movement against xenophobia) offers an answer, a place for more progressive thinkers to come together, discuss and then act. Since its inception in autumn 2013, it’s been focused on opposing the Immigration Bill, currently going through Parliament.

'Come and join the discussion, at MAX’s first conference, and make sure humanity wins over brutality. From 10am – 6pm Saturday 15 March 2014.'

The conference is at the Vernon Square campus of SOAS, Penton Rise, London WC1 9EW. Tickets will be available on the door.
